She does like to watch the same thing over and over and then will suddenly give it up. This is the first time she reacted in such a negative way. When you really look at them, Disney movies are very violent also. I think they have some wonderful values to pass on also but if they make me cry, waht are they doing to the kids. I do think the neurologist was not "clicking" with my daughter when she went to see her and therefore was not able to get a clear picture. As a matter of fact I said to my husband the other day that I think we need to see a developmental psychologist instead.


: Nancy,
: in autistic spectrum disorders children often repeatedly watch the SAME THING
: OVER AND OVER AGAIN, be it a film of television series ,
: each repeat of the "same" brings a totally different meaning/experience for the asd child,
: so it could be the last time your daughter watched goofy she translated something as bad
: which frightened her,.given the character this could be the case.
: Bear in mind that asd children also learn from what they see hence watching tom and jerry-
: (there is "violence" in these)-
: - cartoons might well affect behaviour.
: Maybe a child phycologist would be the best person to evaluate your daughter .
: Visiting
: http://www.autism.com/ari/ will certainly provide you with lots of info.
: Best wishes,
: margaret.
